Itinerary – Los Angeles – USA – 2016

09/06-11/16

I travelled to California to compete in a volleyball tournament in Anaheim, CA before staying in Los Angeles. This is the itinerary I had for my post tournament trip. I travelled mainly with 6 people with additions up to 15 along the way. This is my LA itinerary. The goal for this trip personally, was to arrange it so I could meet up with my LA friends but as always plans change.
